Taikoza was formed in 1995 by Marco Lienhard in New York City in collaboration with other professional Taiko players. The Taiko is a large, barrel-like drum that can fill the air with the sounds of rolling thunder. Drawing from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance, Taikoza has created a new sound using a variety of instruments. In addition to drums of assorted sizes, Taikoza incorporates also the shakuhachi, the fue (both bamboo flutes) and the Koto (a 13 string instrument) to create new dimension and a powerful impact on the audience. Taikoza uses drums that are 3 feet in diameter and weigh up to 170 lbs. The largest is a 6 foot drum that is 4 ½ ‘diameter. Their love for the Taiko art form transcends national boundaries, bringing new energy to this ancestral form. Taikoza has performed in Europe, Asia and have extensively toured North America.

On August 7, 1974, a 24-year-old French high-wire artist named Philippe Petit committed one of the most astonishing performance stunts of the late 20th century: he strung a thin cable in between the two towers of the World Trade Center and not only walked across, from one building to another, but did a nerve-wracking series of knee-bends and acrobatic movements on the cable, some 1,350 feet above the ground, before turning himself in. This occurred to the consternation and chagrin of Port Authority policemen, who immediately arrested Petit for the act — prompting many to dub Petit’s stunt “the artistic crime of the century.” James Marsh’s documentary Man on Wire revisits and recounts this chain of events some 34 years after they occurred.
